On average, people have complained about needing to repair the head gaskets in their 2012 Jeep Wranglers after the odometer has reached 25,000 miles. The most common solution owners take is to replace the head, with an average repair cost of $1,800.

The severe wobbling, or death wobble, on the 2011 Jeep Wrangler begins after the vehicle has accrued over 36,000 miles on average. The issue has also been found in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. Most drivers experience the problem when the vehicle reaches speeds of over 50 miles per hour. This issue typically goes unresolved as dealerships, auto repair shops and Jeep are unable to determine a specific cause.

After 2008 Jeep Wranglers have reached 38,000 miles, drivers notice that the vehicles sometimes begin to consume too much oil. Most are unsure of what causes the problem, while others resolve the issue by replacing the entire engine, which costs over $4,000 on average.
